Words of welcome by the organisers

Welcome to the Junior European Cup 2018 in Villars-sur-Ollon in the Swiss Alps!

The three organizing clubs have come up with an exciting programme, which will unite the best juniors of Europe with the Swiss orienteering elite and recreational runners.

For you, junior elite runners, our goal is to offer you challenging races and to present your performences in an exciting way to the public. We are not reinventing orienteering but we have planned to introduce some changes – stay tuned!

For all of you, our special focus is on the variety of your orienteering experiences. With its spectacular landscapes and friendly towns, the Chablais region of the cantons Vaud and Valais offers a great range of possibilities. To do orienteering is, of course, the best activity, but a thrilling climb to a mountain top, a relaxing stay in a thermal bath or a cultural city tour could make it worthwile for you to stay in this area for a full week.

The tourist offices of Villars-sur-Ollon and Monthey will be happy to help you find suitable accomodation for your family or your club.
